WHAT WE DO
We have a range of acts or character suitable for any occasion and an even bigger wardrobe (quite literally with the trousers!) to cater any theme! We rise above the crowds and provide a professional service suitable as a Meet and Greet, Promotional/Flyer Distribution or adding those final touches to your Event, Festival or Wedding.

Living Statues, also known as Human Statues are a great addition to any event. We've provided Statues for Weddings, Fairs, Corporate Events and even Christmas Parties. We host a whole range of colours, styles and costumes and have even custom made outfits to fit in with corporate themes.

Under our Big Top, you'll find nothing but the best quality Circus equipment. We pride ourselves on only teaching with high-end end Circus toys, which we would only use ourselves whilst performing. We've got everything covered in the Juggling, Spinning and Balancing categories!

Clown / Character
You don't always need a 'Red Nose' to be funny! We integrate character, comedy and clowning skills into a lot of our work. That's because we've years of experience in theatrical comedy, walkabout characters and clown doctoring up our sleeves.

Puppetry & StoryTelling
Puppetry & Storytelling, two of the greatest and oldest art forms. A perfect match!
Storytelling - Something for all the children... Even the big ones! We've previously run workshops and sessions for local libraries across Hampshire and for UK festivals. Our latest interactive show tells the popular children's tale 'Rainbow Fish'.
Puppetry - Covering Bunraku, Shadow and Large Scale Carnival. Perfect for shows, festivals or educational workshops
Mask Making. Mask Devising. Mask Character Building... from KS2 to Degree level we have it covered. We have our own Commedia Dell'Arte set of masks ready and waiting for workshops or to hire.
Parade Lanterns / Sculptures
Over the years we have built Sculptures, Structures & Headpieces for parades, carnivals and festivals. An ideal workshop for a school year group or class to create a themed art project.
Theatre & Street Theatre
Indoors or Out. On the stage or on the Street. We love combining our years of experience and skill sets to create Roaming Theatre or Shows on the Stage.
